The Q&A Archives: Growing Catalopes

Question: Would cantelopes be able to grow in hanging baskets, or do you have any suggestions as to another vegtable I might try?

Answer: If you chose a compact cantaloupe variety such as Sweet Bush Hybrid from Burpee and supported the melons with slings made of old nylon stockings, you might have success with cantaloupes in hanging baskets. Other vegetables that would work are mini varieties of tomato, carrots, beets, greens, radishes and summer squash. Have fun!
